Work in Progress Wednesday

Well technically it's no longer Wednesday for me but I figure it is somewhere in the world!

So back to that bag.  Exterior is done.  Lining is done.  Both look good..  Here's a sneak peak



I'm nervous to put together, as I usually am when finishing the bag.  I'm extra nervous because the exterior is a faux leather.  I think I've only done one other bag where assembly involved stitching faux leather.  It was my first time using it and my topstitching around the opening was really bad. The bottom stitch on the lining got a few loops and my machine had trouble with the thickness. I think I shed a couple tears.

I've learnt a few things about working with vinyl/faux leather since then  To make sure I make the proper adjustments I quickly put together some scraps and "test" stitched.

 
 
 
My machine with a walking foot had no problem sewing through the layers. No issues with the bottom stitch. Excuse my crooked sewing.
 

It's around 1am for me and there's no place for tiredness when bag-making!  So first thing tomorrow I'm going to finish this sucker off..
